Wednesday Rockcraft Workshop 2

The second of the Sydney North Rockcraft Team’s weekly online workshops, and the first recorded one. The team talks a bit about their favourite trips including some highlights from the NZ Canyoning Festival and some recent Region Trips to Kanangra and Newnes for inspiration.

We then jumped into a quick quiz from Ben focusing on some terminology and devices. Followed by a presentation from Linus Hindmarsh (Normanhurst Scouts) on the Petzl GriGri, and one by Lachy Catto (Forest Rovers) on the safety and use of Rappel Racks.

Finally there was a bit of an update on new SIS Qualifications & the workbooks for abseiling and canyoning.
